Updated: Nov 3, 2021

  1. Pizza Napoletana :

Neapolitan pizza, or pizza Napoletana, is a type of pizza that originated in Naples, Italy. This style of pizza is prepared with simple and fresh ingredients: a basic dough, raw tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and olive oil. No fancy toppings are allowed.

2. Lasagna :

It consisted of layers of pasta and sauce without traditional Italian ingredients. Ancient Rome was known to have a similar dish called “lasanum”, which is Latin for container or pot. Lasagne is the plural word for one sheet of lasagna and is used regionally throughout Italy.

3. Bottarga :

Bottarga is mullet roe (or tuna) that has been salted, pressed and seasoned for four or five months. Produced mainly in Sardinia, it is also prepared in other Mediterranean coastal areas from Provence to Tunisia. It looks like a golden-brown or amber sausage, firm but not dry, and it is eaten sliced or grated.

4. Ossobuco :

Ossobuco or osso buco (pronounced Milanese: òss bus is a specialty of Lombard cuisine of cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth. The marrow in the hole in the bone, a prized delicacy, is the defining feature of the dish.

5. Risotto :

What Exactly Is Risotto? Risotto is a creamy Italian dish that tastes a lot like the rice version of mac and cheese. Unlike other rice recipes that require simmering in a pot of water, risotto is cooked very slowly by adding 1/2 cup of liquid at a time.

6. Truffles :

Truffles are known in Italy as 'tartufo'. The origin of this is the Latin word 'tuber', which describes a lump. They are far more like subterranean mushrooms than potatoes, however, growing beneath the surface close to tree roots. Usually, they are found at a depth of around 5 to 30 centimeters underground.

7. Focaccia :

Focaccia (pronounced fo-kah-cha) is a flat bread similar to pizza dough that can be either sweet or savory. In Italy, Liguria is the best known region for focaccia, which is called “classica” in Genoa, a focaccia 1/2 to 1 inch thick, with a light crust and an surface full of indentations that hold oil.

8. Spaghetti Carbonara :

Carbonara means roughly “in the manner of coal miners,” and the likely origin of the name is a Roman restaurant named Carbonara. However, it may also have earned its name because the flecks of black pepper appear like coal dust against the creamy eggs, cheese, and pasta.

9. Polenta :

polenta, a porridge or mush usually made of ground corn (maize) cooked in salted water. Cheese and butter or oil are often added. Polenta can be eaten hot or cold as a porridge, or it can be cooled until firm, cut into shapes, and then baked, toasted, panfried, or deep-fried.

10. Fiorentina :

The bistecca alla fiorentina (beefsteak Florentine style) is an Italian steak made of veal (vitellone) or heifer (scottona) that, combined with the specific preparation, makes it one of the most popular dishes of Tuscan cuisine.
